Abstract

Numerous recent reports have assessed the adequacy of current generating capacity to meet the growing electricity demand from Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) and the potential for using these vehicles to provide grid support (Vehicle to Grid, V2G) services. However, little has been written on how these new loads will affect the medium and low-voltage distribution infrastructure. This paper briefly reviews the results of the existing PHEV studies and describes a new model: the PHEV distribution circuit impact model (PDCIM). PDCIM allows one to estimate the impact of an increasing number of PHEVs (or pure electric vehicles) on transformers and underground cables within a medium voltage distribution system. We describe the details of this model and results from its application to a distribution circuit in Vermont.
